But now that the #MeToo has gained immense momentum, it has motivated Hariharan to speak about the trauma she went through. Here’s a glimpse of Shraddha’s tweets:

I have known about this incident since November 2016, when @sruthihariharan and I attended a talk show together and the talk of casting couch and other related topics came up. Shruti didn’t take names that day but off camera she told us what happened. https://t.co/lo2lkN14H2

I’m sorry you went through what you did Shru. Nobody should feel uncomfortable at their work place, and nobody should be in a position to make someone feel uncomfortable. https://t.co/lo2lkN14H2

Coming to Arjun Sarja, he has denied all the allegations. He also added that his own daughter in the industry and keeping in mind the same, he doesn’t want trivialize something as important as the #MeToo movement. In these reports, Arjun has maintained that he doesn’t want people to misuse something as serious as sexual harassment for publicity.
